We’ve made more than our fair share of jokes around here that South Florida quarterback B.J. Daniels has been with the Bulls for seemingly forever. Unfortunately, his time with the program has indeed come to a disappointing and premature end.
Daniels suffered a broken ankle in USF’s 13-6 win over UConn Saturday night. His season and his collegiate career are likely over. It appears that even in victory, something USF hasn’t had often this year, there’s a loss.
Daniels finishes his career with over 8,000 passing yards and 52 passing touchdowns. He will be replaced by backup quarterback Matt Floyd, who has filled in for Daniels before. Floyd will need to guide USF to three straight victories if the Bulls are to make the postseason.
Daniels is, by all accounts, a likable and good guy. He’s had an up-and-down career at USF, but no one should ever have to see their collegiate playing days end like this.
